Improve your freestyle swimming technique, efficiency and power with Masters Swimming World Record Holder, National Duathlon winner, and coach, Karlyn Pipes. Coach Pipes demonstrates five techniques for improving freestyle using the Vasa Ergometer and underwater video instruction. These techniques will lead to more efficient freestyle swimming and increased stroke power to achieve speed, sustained power, and freestyle endurance:

Technique 1. Hand Placement.
This describes how to achieve perfect high elbow catch / early vertical forearm in your freestyle stroke. A proper set-up of the stroke is critical and enables the swimmer to get more power from the stroke.
